Reader's note

Although the age of steam has passed, the subject holds a fascination for many, and there are numerous enthusiasts to whom this book will appeal. It gives a condensed outline of the steam locomotive in the British Isles from its beginning early in the nineteenth century until the cessation of steam traction in the nationalised British Railway system in 1968. Special emphasis has been given to the many examples of locomotives which have survived from preservation. They are either static exhibits at museums, or at various centres run by private organisations throughout the country some of the engines are maintained in full working order and can be observed actively in steam on various occasions. Particulars of many of these engines have been incorporated in the text.
